The Creation of the World by Arthur Miller
“The Creation of the World” by Arthur Miller is a play that questions what really happened in the Genesis story of Adam and Eve. The director asked me to design him a magnificent tree for the Garden of Eden. After reading the script, I decided to create an eerie, metallic tree that represents the ethereal quality of God and also the fearsome qualities of His power. The tree was suspended from the ceiling like a helix of DNA. In the garden scene, it was lit green and in the desert it was a cold white. The platforms on either side allowed for conversations between good and evil and heaven and earth. They were also stripped down and barren in the desert.

I had a budget of less than $100 for the design.
